Is that with or without a diesel oil salad dressing?

Get yourself a Mark 2 St Patrick the Mark 1 St Patrick bannished all snakes from Ireland. So it will definately work.

Lack of food source will eliminate any animal.

Geese dropping keep snake away but not ducks,ducks are their food and geese chase snake away.

As for sulphur,it does chase snake away as when snake touch it,they will have chemical reaction on them

And they can die (don't believe me,try it on snake yourself) 

But it'll be washed away after rain.

People used to burn sulphur in camp fire,let the smoke blow into the rubber plantation before tapping latex 

in the old days. (In Singapore)

Keep your grassed areas mown. Snakes don't like short grass as it exposes them to predation from birds etc

Short cut grass around the living quarters and a Jack Russell Terrier will keep most snakes away. That terrier is FEARLESS!5956e0e733028_JackRussellTerrier.jpg.58b993aae5a07f64be0bfed19550dd4d.jpg    I am presupposing you cannot lay your hands on a family of mongeese.

More than one mongoose?  555  Never thought to check the plural of mongoose. But there is some debate whether it should be mongooses or mongeese. That's the English language for you. You can have a goose (the bird) or more than one are geese. Cie la vie.

Sadly it appears you are correct. 

    Some people just can't (or don't know how to) "live and let live".... and are proud of it?

How about your animal friends? They live and let live?

I would not sprinkle any stuff around your property just in case your puppies eat. As already mentioned the best method is to adopt a Soi dog.

Even as a puppy the black dog was warning us.

Snakes are part of Thailand and can be found anywhere. So as a golden rule, do not put your hand (or any other body part) in a places where you can not see. Also throwing things at them is risky, your Wife was lucky. If you can not shoo it away, use a grappler and throw it over the fence.

Whilst on the subject of unwanted house guests, anyone know how the stop these guys copulating in my pool.:smile:

I am not sure about dogs as snake repellents....

I often see snakes disappearing in the distance, they avoid confrontation.

The only 2 cobras I ever saw close to our house, were cornered by our dogs.

 

Any noise or movement / vibrations seem to repel snakes.

Chickens would probably help, but I prefer the occasional cobra over chickens....

On the construction sites in India the guys put down Carbolic Acid to keep the snakes away.

Cobras are a serious problem, especially when the monsoon season arrives and the snakes are forced up out of their underground lairs.

The site areas we have that are treated with Carbolic Acid certainly have significantly lower snake bite incident rates than untreated areas.

 

Don't put it where your dogs can get to it though, I'm told it's pretty poisonous.
